This is why it's so hard to not get deja vu with regards to the PS3 "paper launch" at E3.

Another interesting article, source obviously biased as hell but good read:

Yea, total de-javu here. I expect similar results to the last launch, it just might take a little longer this time, at least in the CPU department. From a graphics chip standpoint, I think it'll be surpassed in almost no time, however.

"Ease of use will be a factor, too." Peter Glaskowsky, a senior editor for Microprocessor Report, said Thursday that a "PlayStation 2 will be fundamentally easier to use than a PC."LOL!!! Well, no crap!!! Unless the only thing you do with your PC is hit that power button, of course the console would be easier to use! Glaskowsky's comment just makes me laugh! :p

Yeah, I see your point. But back then they didn't have competitors until later. Now when Microsoft has joined the game, sony have to come out with something good! I mean who would buy a ps3 that sucks over an xbox360 that's very good? I mean, the xbox360 even gets a head start! If the ps3 won't live up to it's standards, noone's gonna buy it anyways, so sony will lose a lot of costumers(of course some die hard sony fans will buy the console). So steeda no worries man, everyone has got an opinion of their own right now about which console is the best, but buying one of 'em will eventually be based on real gaming performance and graphics!
I just hope that sony won't let us down... and Microsoft!

You're never intelligent nor funny, merely a used tampon circling the toilet bowl.

Actually my kids are both very intelligent and straight "A" students. This forum may have people on it with challenged children. Your comment insults all of them. Learn some manners.

You're in the vast minority if you'd prefer to read lame BS personal attacks. The overwhelming majority of our members and guests here would prefer to stay on topic and limit the personal bickering. If you think this is Oceania (talk about a melodramatic analogy) then you're free to leave.

Also, I don't think the Party ever said "please" like I did.

No sweat man. I'm sure you can imagine that I'm never quite sure what people are getting at sometimes. I don't mean to come across as a tool but I'm also way past reacting with kid gloves when it seems like people are popping off just to be difficult. I'm sure you weren't now. I'll have to ask my friend, he's more of in incubus fan than I am. :cool:

UPDATE: Heh, I though you were referring directly to the book 1984. I just read the lyrics from Talk Show On Mute so I understand now. :)
